This week Expedition Mungo is headed to South America in search of Argentina’s answer to Big Foot, the Ucamar.

The Ucamar is said to inhabit the hills surrounding the Andes Mountain range and is said to be a small humanoid creature that walks upright.

The creature has been described as a small goblin like humanoid with big green eyes and very large incisor teeth.

Back in the summer of 2010 a local famer in the El Creston area of Argentina claimed to have shot an Ucamar, but the reports of any followup seem rather sketchy.

However, it is not an isolated report and the local newspaper, El Tribuno, runs stories on the creature every now and then.
